The Rutgers–Camden MARC program provides training, support, and mentorship for undergraduates from underrepresented backgrounds interested in pursuing a PhD in the biomedical sciences with the ultimate goal of enhancing diversity in the biomedical sciences. The Rutgers–Camden MARC program starts in the summer before the students Junior year and continues for two consecutive years. All MARC scholars take part in activities (academic skill building, presentation at conferences, monthly career development meetings, etc) and year-round research at both Rutgers–Camden and the University of Pennsylvania that will build their credentials for graduate school applications. The goal of the program is to build a foundation of experience for our scholars to be accepted and then excel in PhD or MD/PhD programs.
The Rutgers Camden MARC U*STAR Program is supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institutes of Health (NIGMS/NIH) under National Research Service Award T34 GM127154.
